In today’s Guide To Life, I’m going to be learning how to do 3D nail art and I have with me here Belle, she’s my nail artist so… she’s actually the one who does all these amazing nail art that you see on my Instagram.
And she just did this for me yesterday, very nice. But for a change today, instead of getting my nails done, I’m going to be learning how to do it! So… Is it difficult ah? It’s quite difficult. Okay.
But we can try. Okay I hope I am able to do it but I am not like super sure la. I’m looking at some of the stuff that she did here right, it’s like freaking amazing okay. Look at this freaking tiny little lion dance lion for Chinese New Year.
It’s like super, super small and the details are like insane. How long does it take for you to do this? Usually takes around 2-4 hours, depends on the nail art itself. 2-4 hours?! Yeah. Because it’s very intricate.
What am I going to be doing today? We will learn how to do this cute unicorn, by the end of the episode. Think I can do this unicorn, which looks very, very difficult okay. I thought maybe I’d do like.
.. A three-petal flower or something. Okay I try. I try to do a unicorn. Okay this is the solution. So we are going to dip our brush into the solution and then we will dip into the powder. Just take an amount that you want, so if it’s too wet then it will drip down like that.
Okay. This one you have to practise a while la, then you will know. But because it dries according to the temperature, so it will slowly dry on its own, so you cannot be too slow. But how do you know what size ball ball you want? It depends on the thing you want to do, like maybe ribbon? Then a ribbon would be pointed at the middle right? So you can use your brush to push.
Oh… Then after that, mould it. …to the shape that you want. Aiyer so cute! If it’s too big then you can push the sides to make it smaller. Okay. You can slowly adjust la. Woah… it’s so difficult to do lor.
Let’s try to do a heart shape now. Okay. So we’ll make a bigger ball for the heart. Then you press. So the top part you don’t touch. You just spread to make it bigger. Then you pull it, try to balance both sides.
So difficult. I feel like the heart is more difficult than the ribbon. Because it must be symmetrical. So it’s a bit more difficult. Hmm… I know already. Next time I torture you, ask you to do octagon.
What’s the like… weirdest nail art you’ve done before? Got people ask you to do vagina or not? For hen’s night, maybe. No… Feminist movement. Woah it’s super difficult, I forgot how to do it already.
I confirm cannot do this. You want to try? Okay… It’s going to look terrible but all right… Take a bigger ball ah? Your tip must be small. Must be very sharp. Try to… level the… both sides. My eyes are going to break already.
But it looks like a heart. Looks like a nutsack. My awful heart. Quite good what. Okay la, it’s not that bad for a first attempt. I guess it looks like a ugly cookie. So now we can start on the unicorn.
Huh… Okay… Mine is going to look like a crazy horse, maybe? It’s quite easy. Got people ask you to do like a 3D version of their real dog or not? Yeah. Really? Oh my god. But it won’t look exactly the same la because, 3D.
Next time I come here I want to ask her to do a 3D version of my face! Very stressed, like that. Woah so big ah? Bigger one la. Oh my god. The whole thing is very big. So big one okay. So you pat it into the shape you want, put a smaller amount at the neck area, you want to do this step first? Okay! Let’s try.
Like that ah? You think it’s okay then you can stop. I don’t know whether it’s okay. I can’t tell. Then take a… Smaller one, smaller amount. This part don’t have to be so nice, because we will cover with the other colours.
What are we doing next? The horn ah? No, the horn will be last. Oh okay. So it’s like the hair now ah? Huh, curly one leh, so difficult. Cannot lah. Then you just put the ball down, and then press into the shape you want.
What shape is that? Just irregular, look like a cloud. Okay? You want to try first? Okay, I try. And then you can continue with the other colours. Okay. Right now ah, I can feel like my shoulders are like protesting already.
Nowadays this is a terrible job. Quit it. It takes really a lot of like, concentration and… like, tension in your shoulders, like, to like, get it properly done, you know? Reminds me of like, when I was like, doing my like, freaking decorating my phone, with the diamonds, which really after that is shoulder pain for a few days.
Okay I think I’m kind of getting the hang of like, the amount of liquid to take. And the amount of powder to take. You want to take some footage of my retarded horse? Yeah. Dinosaur. Dinosaur with a mullet.
Really fucking done, looks like a dinosaur hahahaha… Mine looks like a dinosaur with a mullet. Oh no… Eh maybe got horn already look better okay? Don’t judge ah. Okay fine, I will do the horn now.
Okay so it’s sharp right? So you must push it. Oh… So if you want to do the spiral effect right, you can use any tool. This one is sharp right? But you must dip in the water first, If not it gets stuck.
Oh, okay, okay. Then you can cut it. Oh… Oh no! It looks like it has a carrot on the head. Eh… very fat. How ah, how? Belle… Oh my god, no, it looks like it’s wearing a party- Ice cream cone. It looks like it’s wearing a party hat.
Ice cream cone. It’s… no no no no no! It’s very ugly. You know what I’m going to do? This is not a unicorn. Mine is a… Horse with rainbow mane wearing a party hat. I’m just going to change it into a party hat.
I’m very sad about my ugly horse, I don’t want to do anymore things to it already. I just want to give up. No… You’re doing very well. She’s a mum of two. She knows how to patronize people. Wow this ice-cream that you drew that looks like poop is very nice! Well done! That’s what I do to Dash.
Woah! This line you draw that is so crooked, woah very nice leh! Oh no. My horse very ugly I cannot deal with it. Can you save my horse? Okay. After you do your ribbon. Okay. I do yellow colour la. Because my pink is too near to that thing.
I think… if I’m doing it on somebody’s finger, that person has dislocated their hand already. Confirm more difficult but right now I’m just like, cheating, and like, turning it here and there. But to be fair when Belle does my nail she also turns my finger at very awkward degrees.
Yay… Very nice. Very nice. You want to draw the eyes? You will sell this to your customer? Very nice? Woah then nobody come back already. Some people will like it. People who are blind la! Will like it la! Okay.
Wait go onto those like… like become viral. “Did my nails – expectation vs reality” You know? Okay. We’ll paint the eyes now. Oh my god. She hand painted the eyes it’s like… Freaking small? She’s holding the tiniest brush in the world.
I think it’s made of like, one… One single horse hair. What the hell! Cannot la! How to paint such a small thing? It is just… It’s like, literally like, smaller than like 1mm. Your turn! I feel like you trying to sabotage me.
This is the smallest shit I’ve ever painted. I am going to draw the two smallest eyelashes in the world. Oh f… fuck. It looks fucking ugly. It looks like a pitch fork. You’re still laughing?! Where is the eraser? You want to erase or not? Yes! It’s very ugly! You erase the whole eye? Never mind I can do this.
Second attempt I will be able to do it. When you draw the eyelashes right, the brush must be very light. So hard. Okay. Then you need to dry it with the UV lamp. I have newfound appreciation for… when I ask her to do this kind of thing.
Then like, last time she do for me right, I was like, it’s a bit crooked, can do again or not? Now I’m like okay, never mind, a bit crooked, it’s alright. You want to add the white colour part? Okay. Can I say no? Cannot.
So we add the highlight on the eye… Huh?! What did you do? So fast?! That literally took her like, a few seconds. Okay. It’s not even a small line but I cannot already. I think if I do anymore it’s going to look like, terrible but yeah, okay la, can la.
Managed to… do the eye. Alright. But my mane is very ugly. Like very… It’s very uneven. Let me save it for you. It looks like a cobbled road. This unicorn cannot be saved. It needs plastic surgery and hair treatment.
Okay now we have to put the top coat. Okay… And then finish ah? Yeah. Actually with the top coat it kind of looks a lot better, like it smoothens it out so you cannot really see how rough it is. Okay la, actually with the top coat it’s not that bad la.
Okay it’s very nice. Okay because she saved my horse’s mane. It’s quite good. It’s quite good… Vaguely recognizable as a unicorn. …for a first try la. Yeah lor. Okay la. First try. Okay out of 10, how did I fare today? Mmm.
.. I can give you a… 6? 6 ah? Barely pass leh. 6 out of 10? Like a slightly above average-looking person. Thanks A LOT. Overall it’s quite nice la. Would you hire me? Okay. But must start from the basic first.
